exchange some sexually explicit material and they ultimately met for, uh, what they determined to be a date." gilman says battaglia may not have been aware that the boy was a minor the first time they met. but adds they got together two more times, and on both of those occasions, battaglia knew the boy was underage. to create an account, the grindr app requires an email address, password and date of birth . but there's no mechanism to actually verify a member's true age.paul gilman/petaluma police dept- "we do know that, uh, people under the age of 18 can lie about their age to get onto the app." in this case, the victim's mother found out about the relationship and called police. the investigation spanned about six months before battaglia was arrested. and, police say battaglia has admitted to exchanging sexually explicit materials with up to a dozen other minors. gilman says parents should keep a close eye on their kids' online activity, to get ahead of situations like this.paul gilman/petaluma police dept- "kids nowadays can be far more savvy than their parents. uh, we need to have those conversations so we know where to look and how to look."
